Shimmy is about a particularly hard day in the life of a young girl (played by Chahat Tewani) and her father (played by Pratik Gandhi) who can’t quite understand what’s troubling her. The film also stars Bhamini Oza Gandhi in a pivotal role. It is written and directed by Disha Noyonika Rindani, an upcoming talent who has previously co-written ‘A Death in the Gunj’ and directed award winning short documentary based on Indian Rapper Naezy called ‘Bombay 70’. Shimmy is produced by Guneet Monga and Achin Jain, the power duo whose banner Sikhya Entertainment has churned out remarkable titles like Pagglait, The Lunchbox and Masaan to name a few.
